(Dominican Today): Dominican Republic  President Leonel Fernandez headed the ribbon cutting Tuesday for the Caribbean’s biggest wind park, whose first stage will generate 33 megawatts. The complex Los Cocos and Quilvio Cabrera, located near the southwest towns of Juancho and Enriquillo, was built by the power companies EGE Haina and Punta Cana-Macao (CEPM) at a cost of US$100.0 million. According to the utilities, the facility -19 wind generators of 125 meters in height- will save the country 700,000 barrels of oil per year and prevent 1,700 tons of CO2 from being released to the atmosphere.
